I'd go along with that. It was the St Stephen/Eleven on Live/Dead that got me on board. A mighty mighty side of music. That said, The Eleven from Feb 27 69 may well be its equal if for no other reason than it being a total Phil Phest.

I'll have to revisit that one. I always found it difficult to listen to, because it's slightly slower than the live/dead version and my ears are always expecting to hear the latter. If I remember correctly the 2/27 one starts kinda flat in comparison, but builds up in intensity

Speaking for CLIFF, and myself, the Elevens of Feb 11/12, 1969 @ Fillmore East are just amazing. They rank as the "tightest" in our books (think I have this right for CLIFF). I concede, however, this does not necessarily make them the "best", but, for me, it does (11th, the commercial release in particular, that is). I do also agree there's a great deal of attraction for those that we heard so long ago with Live Dead; for many yrs there was NO other StSt for me.

Overall, it shows that practice indeed was making perfect with all these tunes...perhaps they peaked just a couple weeks prior to the "real thing" with Bill G?

;)

And yes, Rose, the Aox songs like DTRag/MtnMoon/etc really were outstanding tunes; too bad they didn't stay in the rotation, eh? I have always loved the MMoon-->DS transition/segue...

Brother Tell, have to agree - 2-12's "Eleven", pretty much flawless and the best paced of all that I've heard. I revisit the show over and over again.
